ISBN 039915938X. Bettye LaVette with David Ritz.

Bettye LaVette's career has been a one-of-a-kind roller-coaster ride through the world of music; it has taken her from the peaks to the pits and back. In this unflinchingly honest memoir, she boldly recounts her freewheeling childhood---her parents ran an illegal liquor business out of their living room, which was frequented by some of the top acts of the forties and fifties---her short-lived conquest of the R&B world in the 1960s, her decline into poverty and despair, and her recent comeback and career revival, with two Grammy-nominated CDs and numerous appearances on major television talk shows. Poignant, brazen, and fearless, A Woman Like Me is a tour de force from one of the most outspoken female performers singing today---and she's a force to be reckoned with.
